Huddersfield Town FC - Sky Bet Championship - Heating Systems

Viessmann installers from England and Germany will compete against each other in a friendly football match at Huddersfield Town Football Club on April 21st.

On Friday 21st April, Huddersfield Town team sheet sponsor, Viessmann, recreated the classic football rivalry between England and Germany by organising a friendly match between its German and English installers at Huddersfield’s PPG Canalside Training Ground.

The English installers were hoping to deliver the same success as the 1966 England team.

Unfortunately, the German team took the honours with an emphatic 6-1 victory.

Viessmann area business manager, James Carter, who organised and played in the event, said, “The match was fought very professionally, albeit with some crunching tackles and a number of noticeable limps the next day! Without meaning to make excuses, the German team benefited from a stand out performance from its striker who plays football at a high level in Germany. Besides the match itself, our Vriendly was a valuable exercise in getting Viessmann installers together, sharing their on and off-pitch experiences over the whole weekend.”
